Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

PostSubject: For Lord Chelmsford , the Zulu royal army attack the camp at night & charge into it with all numbers   Mon Oct 07, 2013 10:21 pm

Hi All

The manuscript instructions of Lord Chelmsfords are forwarded for the Consideration off Officers Comdg Columns when entering Zululand.

They were found among Colonel Durnford's papers on the battlefield of Isandhlwana in May 1879 .and their signature may be Chelmsford's own...

The sixteenth of them ordered :

The possible tactics of the Zulus are as follow -

(A) Avoid the Troops and attack our line of communications-

(B) Attack the Column when on the line of march-

(C) Attack the camp at night & charge into it with all numbers

(D) Await attack in position between White , & Black Umvelosi Rivers



Incredible  ! (C) Attack the camp at night & charge into it with all numbers

A near this, some will wonder what could have happened January 22, 1879 at Isandhlwana !

Lord Chemlsford did not even have imagined that the Zulu royal army dares to attack a British camp in broad daylight !

Before the January 22, 1879, in the spirit of Lord Chemlsford, which would arrive at Isandhlwana , this was impossible !


Cheers

Pascal
